Commissioned Portraits

Shirley Pulido

Shirley Pulido studied at Syracuse University, the University of Rochester, the Brooklyn Museum Art School and the Cooper Union in New York. A Fulbright Scholarship enabled Pulido to study at the Sorbonne and Le Grand Chaumier in 1957. She lived and worked in France for four years, and, with a deepening commitment to the Old Masters, developed her techniques in portraiture and still life. She eventually resumed her career in New York City, adding mural painting to her repertoire.

In 1970 Pulido moved her studio to Hancock, New Hampshire, and continued to specialize in portraiture, still life, and landscape murals. She took an interlude of three years in England in the early 1980s to execute mural, trompe l’oeil and portrait commissions.
